Southeast Notes: Huerter, Beal, Prince, Isaac

The Hawks are in the early stages of a rebuild. Having brought in a new coaching staff and with a new focus on player development, it has been very encouraging for the team to see Kevin Huerter break out in recent weeks. After slowly adjusting to the NBA, Huerter has received more playing time as of late and has been productive in his role. Chris Kirschner of The Athletic details Huerter’s recent stretch of play and what it means for the Hawks’ future.

For the season, Huerter is averaging 8.8 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game while knocking down 38% of his 3-pointers. However, in January the 20-year-old guard is averaging 15 points, 4.8 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game while playing 38 minutes per contest.

As Huerter continues to develop alongside Trae Young and John Collins, it’s clear that the Hawks have quality young talent to grow and develop for years to come.

    Huerter is getting it done at guard, so Prince can step right in. I think it was assumed Huerter would play F when he was drafted. He has the highest net scoreboard +/- on the team.

    We were at game tonight and was surprised how well Huerter dribbles and moves. When he grows and bulks up he’ll be pretty special

    wiz gotta find a way to trade wall, build around beal or they’ll be doing nothing for a long time

    Trae Young is like JR Smith with full green light. So many questionable shots but when one goes in you’re like oh okay.
